New BlackBerry Phone & OS?

There’s rumours that a brand new Blackberry device called the “T” would be launching next month. Supposedly the “T” will be a new flagship device designed to combat the iPhone and it will launch in the US and Europe. The image on the right (click to view the full size) is supposed to be two screen shots of the new BlackBerry 6.0 OS, which has been leaked online.

Screen resolution is in line with a Storm or Storm2 style touchscreen device, and the buttons certainly look to be sized for finger input.  That would also fit in with the BlackBerry slider – codenamed “T” or “Talladega” – which is expected to have a large touchscreen along with its pull-out QWERTY ‘board.

RIM also look to be playing with the idea of using homescreen widgets, which would be a significant departure for the company.  The BlackBerry faithful are already poring over the two images to see if they a) look real, and b) look suitably enticing, though comments already heard include the fact that the whole thing looks “too busy” for their liking.

Star Trek : TOS Women 4

An absolutely stunning imagery of womanly sex appeal & beauty combined with a touch of class. My computer monitor almost melted when the first scene featuring the lovely Miss Sherry Jackson was playing!

Truly a magnificent example of my theory that women in the 60s were just sexier than of any other decade – plain goddamn simple for anyone with a brain & eyes to see. Sherry Jackson guest appears in the season 1 episode What Are Little Girls Made Of? as Andrea, a female android built sometime between 2261 and 2266, by Roger Korby. By Human standards, her behavior was quite simplistic, to the point where she would duplicate patterns of learned behavior.

To demonstrate that she was merely a machine and unable to feel emotions, Korby ordered her to kiss and then strike Captain Kirk. Later, when Kirk kissed her again, she next attempted to strike him, as she had done earlier. This time he kissed her much more passionately, and she became confused and upset, claiming she was “not programmed” for Kirk. William Shatner is one of the luckiest actors on television ever!

Ordered to protect the complex after Ruk’s destruction, Andrea mistakenly destroyed the android copy of Kirk. When she found Korby and realized her mistake, she became emotional. Perhaps threatened by his love for Christine Chapel, perhaps seeking his approval, Andrea began to kiss Korby passionately. This may have convinced Korby that Kirk was right, and the androids were vulnerable to unprogrammed emotions, for during this kiss, Korby activated a phaser, destroying himself and Andrea.
